Welcoming Pandey, the chief minister said Keralites in Oman faced numerous issues abroad.

“One of the main points our people raise is about staff shortage in the Indian embassy in Oman. Hence, they have to wait for long to get issues sorted out,” said Chandy.

Pandey said the staff shortage issue would be handled by ministry of external affairs and the purpose of his Kerala visit was to seek the state government’s cooperation.
